Lang Syne Or Lili Marlene -Sam R Gibson

THERE’S A CLOWN IN THE CORNER STARING DOWN AT HIS SHOES
WITH AN UPSIDE-DOWN SMILE AND HIS FACE PAINTED BLUE
GOT A RAINY DAY STARE AND A WHISKEY DAY HEAD
THINKING THEY BURIED HIM BEFORE HE WAS DEAD

DREAMING OF MIRACLES OUT ON THE ROAD
NIGHTS WHEN THE CIRCUS BIG TENT WOULD EXPLODE
LAUGHTER OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD
THE FLASHING GREEN EYES OF THE ACROBAT GIRL

DREAMING A CIRCUS BAND PLAYING – LANG SYNE OR LILI MARLENE
DREAMING IF HE JUST KEEPS DREAMING ENOUGH
HE’LL MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD LAUGH AGAIN

HE REMEMBERS THE NIGHTS IN THE RED CARAVAN
REACHED OUT TO HER AND SHE TOOK HIS HAND
BUT HE’D NO HEAD FOR HEIGHTS AND ONE DAY SHE LET GO
SOME FALLS COME SO HARD IT’S THE END OF THE SHOW

DREAMING A CIRCUS BAND PLAYING – LANG SYNE OR LILI MARLENE
DREAMING IF HE JUST KEEPS DREAMING ENOUGH
HE’LL MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD LAUGH AGAIN

PLUMED CIRCUS PONIES THEY PRANCE THROUGH HIS DREAMS
THE LION BREAKS FREE FROM ITS CHAINS
THE ACROBAT GIRL RISES HIGH IN THE SKY
AND THE FIRE-EATER BURSTS INTO FLAMES — HALLELUH!

DREAMING A CIRCUS BAND PLAYING – LANG SYNE OR LILI MARLENE
DREAMING IF HE JUST KEEPS DREAMING ENOUGH
HE’LL MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD LAUGH AGAIN
